In its manifesto for the assembly polls unveiled in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday, the BJP lined up several promises, including a legislation to protect traditions of the Ayyappa temple at Sabarimala and a law against "Love Jihad", while assuring employment for at least one person from each family and free laptops to high school students.

"NDA releases a Kerala manifesto that is a farrago of venomous claims on 'love Jihad', hollow promises and fantasy welfare schemes stolen from their opponents," said Tharoor, known for his penchant for using little-known words.

"The only consolation is that they will never be in a position to implement any of it," the MP from Thiruvananthapuram said. On Wednesday, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar released the manifesto of the saffron party-led NDA front along with senior state leaders O Rajagopal, PK Krishnadas, NDA leader and Kerala Kamaraj Congress state chief Vishnupuram Chandrashekhar, among others.
